DADAA, TELETHON AND CIRCUS WA COLLABORATION

Posted in art, city of fremantle, culture, disability, Uncategorized by freoview on May 2, 2018

 

Fremantle’s DADAA is in a new partnership with Channel 7’s Telethon for 2018 and 2019.

Experience Collider is a dynamic and original arts project designed especially for teenagers with high support needs. It aims to offer young people exciting ways to build physical strength, communication skills, confidence and resilience, while developing new friendships and networks to help them connect.

“DADAA is delighted to be supported by Telethon in this innovative and collaborative arts project,” said DADAA’s Executive Director, David Doyle. “Teenagers with disability and high support needs can become socially isolated, lonely and depressed. This project will break down these barriers through quality arts participation and engagement.”

Experience Collider will also involve researchers from the Telethon Kids Institute to further their Quality of Life research program.

Experience Collider will blend digital media with dance, circus and theatre through a series of workshops over 18 months, culminating in a professional festival-style performance showcase in 2019.

This new project sees DADAA joining creative forces with Circus WA, enhancing the new creative hub activated since both organisations co-located to the historic Old Boys’ School at Princess May Park.

CIRCUS WA BIG TOP BLOW UP

Bad luck for Fremantle Circus WA in their new home at Princess May Park. The big top tent blew up in the first storm of the winter season on Wednesday night and now they are doing urgent repairs on it.

CIRCUS WA NEW FREO TENT HOME

Posted in children, circus wa, fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on June 3, 2017

 

 

The preparations for the relocation of the circus school CIRCUS WA from the Artsource building at Phillimore Street to their temporary new home at Princess May Park next to DADAA at the former Boys School are well underway.

A spring floor has been built and this morning the big top was put up, so it won’t be long until the kids can train their circus acts in a real circus tent.

PRINCESS MAY PARK HOME FOR CIRCUS SCHOOL

Posted in children, city of fremantle, community by freoview on March 4, 2017

Now here is a innovative approach by the City of Fremantle to try to  accommodate Circus WA.

The community group has been given notice by state agency Artsource to vacate its existing premises on Phillimore Street by 7 April 2017.

Circus WA is seeking approval from the City to licence a portion of Princess May Park to temporarily accommodate its operations. It plans to erect a large tent to the west of the Old Boys School that will allow it to operate for up to three years while it identifies appropriate long term premises in another part of Fremantle.

Nearby businesses DADAA, Clancy’s Fish Pub and The Fremantle Education Centre are supportive of the temporary move.

The proposed licence is for 1 year with two further terms of 1 year each at the City’s approval. This means that the City has the option not to extend for the second or third year should the license conflict with the development of 2 Point Street.

I am not sure how practical this is going to be with the imminent development of the Hilton Doubletree Hotel just west of the proposed location for the tent, and also the security of the tent with Princess May Park being infamous for being a favourite location for homeless people day and night.

Circus WA has been looking for new premises in Fremantle for many years and wanted to share the Naval Stores at Cantonment Hill with Enkel but that fell unfortunately through.

The item is on the agenda for Wednesday’s FPOL Committee.
